  • Got some new shoes for the tour. Firehawk indy 500 205-55/16 and an alignment . I hand Conti DW's but they got hard with age , they had plenty of meat they just got old . The Firehawks have great grip I like them so far other than that not much else going on other than getting her out in nice weather .

    • I've got the Firehawk Indy's as well, but in 17" form. I like them pretty well too. I got them because reviews on TireRack said they have a bit softer ride than other summer tires. My H&R springs are just a tad too stiff for my taste so every little bit of comfort added back in helps.

      I'm taking my contour into the shop Friday to diagnose a high rev. It idles about 600 rpm high, and the rpm hangs between shifts. I tried the throttle hang fix and it didn't quite fix it all the way. Replaced the IAC, but no dice. Now thinking it could be related to the cruise control, as that recently stopped working and the interwebz says those two things are commonly related. Here's to hoping!

      Also getting some paintless dent removal done while at the shop, and having my 16 year old 17" Konig Tantrums refurbished and straightened out. Who likes to spend money on a 20 year old Ford Contour? Oooh, pick me, pick me!

      • New here so catching up. Front end links came this week from Rock; still waiting on rear chassis mount bushings. Already did the rear end links on the Tour and XR. Probably install the front links this weekend, weather permitting.

        • In the past month I installed Ksport Kontrol Pro coilovers with all new mounts. I used the OEM style mount system for the coilovers. Ride height before was a bit high and it was unstable (worn struts and springs). The car has settled a bit and it is about 2.5 to 3 inches lower now. I have winter tires on it now but will put the Focus rims on when it warms up.
